There are moments that change your life forever. Several moments actually if you live for a good amount of time. Opportunities will come and go. You’ll have to be strong enough to survive some of them. You’ll have to give each decision its day in court.
Not everything will come down to how intelligent you are or how compassionate, strong, or patient. It won’t matter how together you seem to have it or how experienced. Shit will happen. You will have a choice to make.
I would recommend distancing yourself from emotions first. Look at the facts. It may take time to get to this point. This is where patience comes in.
If something tragic happens find people who will be patient and kind. People who will let you cry. Those who will let you collapse but will be there to hold you up when you have nothing left.
Don’t do it yourself.
Your life will change forever. More than once.
You can’t prepare for those moments.
Just know they are waiting for you.
